Yes it does work, i just did it again.
I find this method works best for me
Take a 4gb usb stick
Download the ubuntu image from http://www.stephenford.org/joggler/
You will probably find a .bin file inside the zip file (use win rar to look whats inside)
Extract that to your desktop
Then use the disk manager to write that to your usb stick. You might need to search *.* when browsing in order to see the file on your desktop
Once written to your mem stick (you might get an error - it doesnt usually seem to matter, just click ok)
Stick the usb in the joggler, wait ages a while until everything has loaded, its pretty slow on first boot.
Connect to your wifi (little icon in the right corner)
Find Root Terminal under the programs and then type [line by line - each time press enter] the script
- Code: Select all
tar xvfz app-o2flash-26635.8686-S3-f1-reimage.tgz
tools/bin/partimage -z2 restore /dev/mmcblk0p2 payload/image.myg
tools/bin/partimage -z2 restore /dev/mmcblk0p3 payload/image.myg
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt
cp payload/vmlinux /mnt/vmlinux0
cp payload/vmlinux /mnt/vmlinux1
md5sum vmlinux0 >>sum0
md5sum vmlinux1 >>sum1
sed -i '3d' sum0
sed -i '3d' sum1
Wait after each line for it to return to the prompt, sometimes it says 100% done but still has some work to do.
(if you have a usb hub, a usb keyboard and another mem stick you can put the script into a notepad file using a pc, then open the file on the joggler, easier to copy and paste each line into Terminal than typing on the joggler)
When it reboots, after the screen turns off (take a little while), take out the USB stick.
Should then boot up.
The Birdslikewires method is probably quicker but for me the above works everytime.
